Painting From "The Zone" Book - Twenty Eight

24"x30" Mixed media on canvas

"The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery."
-Carl Gustav Jung

We are almost and the end of the line here with just two more pages left from my book. I hope you've been enjoying this diversion from my small daily painting posts...and... that you might be inspired to paint from your 'zone.'

I had a baffling conversation with a woman (probably in her 60's)who attended my recent gallery exhibit opening. She mentioned she would love to attend one of my 'Painting From The Zone' workshops but was too frightened because she 'can't draw a straight line,'and didn't want to embarrass herself. I tried to assure her that prior painting experience was not necessary, in fact even ever picking up a paint brush was not necessary and in short, it is an experience of discovery and freeing one's dormant creativity. Producing a 'pretty picture' is not the goal. Actually, one of the only 'rules' is that no one comment on what anyone else is doing or even overtly view what anyone else is doing. The paintings are not judged or discussed. I try to sustain an environment of freedom and minimize self-consciousness. I suggested she had this one precious life to explore new experiences...she kept shaking her head. How be trapped in only what is safe and familiar...
